Through their volunteer work, husband-and-wife team Scot and Jacqueline Tatelman witnessed lots of American children carrying their school supplies in plastic bags. That prompted the pair to found STATE, a line of clean, colorful backpacks, totes, lunch bags, and pencil cases that make a difference. For every STATE bag purchased, the Brooklyn-based company donates a fully stocked knapsack to a child in an at-risk U.S. neighborhood. And not only are the carryalls philanthropic, but STATE’s streamlined designs come in a wide range of graphic prints and modern colors, ensuring there’s a style for every grown-up and mini-me alike.
